High level local public officials (mayors/public managers) as well as other stakeholders from central administration level or from other interested multilaterals, international and national organizations, are invited to attend Conferences and Workshops, during which the A-C Program is launched. The aim is to raise awareness and interest of the demand side representatives for the strategic and participatory A-C Methodology.
Beginning with 2006, more than 500 mayors/public managers from more than 10 countries have been reached and persuaded that corruption can be cured and prevented with their commitment and involvement.
Ronald MacLean Abaroa and Ana Vasilache/FPDL designed and conducted these awareness raising events:
- In 2006 an Awareness Raising Workshop was held for Mayors from Romania and Moldova
- In 2007-2009 Awareness Raising Workshops/Conferences were organized in Bulgaria, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia and Ukraine
- In 2012-2013 Awareness Raising Workshops were held in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, in the frame of the WB-Austria Urban Partnership Program
